with an assault rifle. a preliminary review of terror databases and watch lists found no connections to the suspected gunman. officials also say he isn't a text message -- sent a text message to a family member today saying he was going to kill himself. police went to his apartment but he wasn't there. we'll have more from l.a.x. in a few minutes, but first cbs 5 reporter mark kelly is live at sfo where security was beefed up and some flights were canceled. mark. >> reporter: many of these bay area airports are warning passengers tonight check your flight status before heading into the airport tonight or into this weekend. it has been a very hectic day for these passengers. they are facing canceled flights and an increased police presence at many of our airports. the mineta san jose security is tight as tsa tries to cut down on long lines passengers anxious to board planes. some passengers got diverted to san jose after being bound for

6:02pm
l.a.x. and vacation with friends. >> supposed to be 1:15, my flight was canceled and we were rescheduled to 3:35. >> reporter: these friends switched airports to get in earlier. >> so we took a ticket to southwest that flies into orange county. >> right now, all of the airlines that operate between sfo and l.a.x. can expect flight delays today. >> reporter: the l.a.x. shootings certainly affected sfo. tighter security and cancelled flights are just one concern. for passengers, a killing like this has been extra cautious during their travels. >> you just look around and be more aware of the surroundings than usual. >> reporter: so virgin and southwest airlines were impacted the most and later this afternoon, here at sfo, they have started scaling back the police presence once they determine, liz, that this was an isolated incident at l.a.x. >> all right, mark, thank you. a live look at l.a.x.
6:03pm
right now. two terminals are just being put back in service. terminal 3 still closed as authorities investigate the deadly shooting. as randy paige tells us, the gunman carried a chilling note into the airport. >> reporter: photos captured by passengers' cell phones show the inside of terminal 3 this morning and we believe this to be the assault rifle used by the gunman in the deadly shooting. airport police chief patrick gannon describes what happened when the lone gunman walked into terminal 3 with a bag carrying the assault rifle and according to the associated press a handwritten note which said wanted to kill tsa. >> an individual came into terminal 3 of this airport, pulled an assault rifle out of a bag an opened fire in the terminal. -- and opened fire in the terminal. he proceeded up into the screening area, where tsa
6:04pm
screeners are, and continued shooting and went past the screeners back into the airport itself. >> reporter: l.a. city fire says seven victims were treated, six transported to nearby hospitals. we saw this victim wheeled into the ucla medical center. we noticed he arrived under tight security secured by handcuffs to the gurney. we don't know if he is the suspected gunman. we also saw two tsa officers transported by ambulance, according to the union that represents tsa officers, one behavior detection officer who was recently transferred from montana died. three others were injured. police are confident the gunman acted alone. randy paige, kpix 5. >> tonight and tomorrow, police and the fbi will be collecting evidence inside terminal 3 at l.a.x. they will need to document everything there how the gunman opened fire, where he went, hundreds of travelers scrambled to get out of the line of fire. one tsa worker confirmed dead
6:05pm
tonight. others are injured. they were wounded. stay right here for more with the latest on the investigation coming up at 6:30. all week we have been trying to get to the bottom of google's secret project in the middle of the bay. kpix 5's allen martin joins us now. today you were able to get to the state's top leaders. >> reporter: they didn't have much to say. we are looking for someone who knows what's going on and willing to talk about it. in the meantime, we know the barge is under the direction of the so-called google x division of the company. it hasn't moved. there's no construction happening. yet what's growing is the umbrella of government leaders who don't know or say they don't know what's going on at treasure island. today, we asked the governor. >> there's so many things i want to know but you can add that to the list. do you know? >> reporter: i do know. >> what's going on? >> reporter: it's google's plan to market their google glass. you haven't been informed by the coast guard or anybody? >> no. no, i don't -- there are a few things that don't always get to my desk but i'll look into it now that you have brought it up. >> reporter: then we tried the
6:06pm
lieutenant governor, who seemed to give a rather tongue in cheek incredulous response given his relationship with google cofound your sergey brin. >> i just talked to sergey brin and i'll show you my email exchange. he won't tell me and he is a friend. i'm so upset. i'm going to figure this out. >> reporter: what kpix 5 has found out through a source familiar with the highly secretive project is that it's being personally directed by sergey brin. the movable showroom for google products most importantly google glass is constructed of 40-foot shipping containers that can be assembled and disassembled anywhere in the world but google was informed by the coast guard the structure which contains three floors of showroom and upper party deck with lanais and bars that it is a floating vessel and subject to all applicable federal maritime regulations. the longer google stays silent,
6:07pm
the more the rumor swirls. it was supposed to go to fort mason today but it's still at treasure island. >> you were out there last night? >> under the cover of darkness. >> reporter: security is tight but there are more construction pieces that are either extras or possibly looks like there could be enough to build a whole 'nother barge and four- story building and that is a whole 'nother barge out there not being useed. >> you got one, why not build two? >> and a third, four. >> maybe three. >> i love the fact that the governor didn't know anything. [ laughter ] >> he does now. >> allen, thank you for that. only on 5 we have learned silicon valley's commercial garbage will soon be turned into renewable energy and compost. len ramirez got a look at the nation's first greenways facilities of its kind. >> reporter: a lot of people may remember the scene from back to the future where doc comes back to refuel the delaurean and stops next to garbage cans and loads in things like banana peels. that seemed like a clever movie gag at the time but that is now happening and it will be happening at this facility as we see in this exclusive look
6:08pm
on our very large-scale. >> reporter: this is the newest high-tech landmark in silicon valley but this facility has nothing to do with gadgets or football teams. it's all about turning sloppy kitchen leftovers into clean renewable energy. >> we'll be able to take all the organic waste from the city of san jose and process it so that it will extract the energy in a period of 21 days. >> reporter: that's right. zero waste facility is designed to take the natural process of decomposition and put it into overdrive to produce power now. >> this is a highly controlled highly efficient way to digest the material. this is going to happen in 21 days or less. if we put it in the landfill it's going to take somewhere between 5 to 15 years to do. >> reporter: the largest portion of things still buried in landfills is still organic waste but as the mounds will attest will eventually run out
6:09pm
of space. this facility called a dry fermentation an aerobic digestion planted will digest billions of pounds of waste. inside the vacuum chamber the material will be treated to make it quickly decompose. when it does, it will produce methanely will be used to run electrical generators. >> the kitchen scraps and yard waste and all that wet organic stuff that no one thought had any value, it's got value. >> reporter: in the near future the methane could also be turned into compressed natural gas to power garbage trucks completing the cycle. with 16 bunkers each big enough to fit 40 truckloads of material nothing this size has ever been attempted in the u.s. >> we really see this facility to be the landmark facility that's going to be replicated throughout the state of california as the way to recover organics from the waste industry. >> reporter: california cities are under mandate from the state to reduce landfill flows by 75% so you're going to be

6:11pm
happened in one of those tunnels was in 2007. commuters ran out of the tunnel when a mercedes caught fire in the center bore during the evening commute. everyone escaped safely. a far more disastrous fire was back in 1982. it killed 7 people. in that case a crash involving a gasoline tanker sparked a massive fire that roared through the caldecott. a new fourth bore has significant safety improvements to help vent any smoke and allow people to escape in case of a fire. that bore is set to open in two weeks. bay area headlines. chp believes the driver of this mangled car was drunk when he slammed into two construction workers on interstate 680 this morning. one of those workers was killed. the crash on northbound 680 by scott creek the off-ramp there tied up traffic for hours. the 20-year-old driver is under arrest. the construction worker who survived the crash is expected to be okay. a big rig was hanging over a garl rail on 101 in san
